Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 139



For the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge this week, I layered Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Vanilla and two sheets from the Razzleberry Lemonade ds. The top layer of ds was overstamped with En Francais in Rich Razzleberry. The edges of both ds layers were liberally sponged with Rich Razzleberry before they were distressed.  I got this great idea to layer the ds from Tiffany Bauer -- go see her fabulous blog.  If shabby chic is your thing, than Tiffany is your go-to girl!


I love this old set -- why does SU always retired the ones that are great for watercoloring?  I'm going to have to do some more projects with it before I put it back away....
